Hi

I am running an application in Windows XP mode on Windows 7 that uses an ODBC connection to a remote DB2 database.  This has been working fine but now we are getting socket closed and connection link closed errors if users leave the application for a few minutes and then return.  How can I troubleshoot this issue and determine the cause of the timeout if thats the issue?

perhaps a dba turned on a timeout parameter on the db2 end
i would search the connection string parameters, maybe it's possible to specify a different timeout than the default one

other approach would be to change the application and make it handle such a problem by reconnecting

Hi!

Did you change anything in the network ? New switch, load balancer or some network config change ?
This could (as momi_sabag says) be a timeout setting on the db2 server side (if the dba changed it).
